Educomp Solutions today said it has paid off its foreign currency convertible bonds worth $110.75 million, including a redemption premium of $32.25 million, after it received $155 million from four investors, including the promoter group.
The International Finance Corporation (IFC), French development finance institution Proparco and private investment firm Mount Kellet are the other investors, a press release from Educomp said.
The IFC has invested $55 million, Proparco $45 million Mount Kellet $30 million and the promoter group $25 million. The funding is through a combination of equity and debt.
Mount Kellet will also get a board representation as part of the deal, the company said.
Shares of the company were up nearly 3 percent at Rs 159.
“The long-term nature of the debt improves the asset-liability profile of Educomp’s balance sheet and will help Educomp to realise significant value from its investment in its core businesses such as K12,” the release said.
